Abbeycrest resident celebrates milestone 102nd birthday

Kathleen Froude, a resident of Abbeycrest care home in Sonning Common, celebrated her 102nd birthday on the 1st of December. Kathleen enjoyed a wonderful birthday cake with her goddaughter, friends and relatives who visited her at the home on the special day. Other residents from Abbeycrest and the care team also joined in the celebrations with a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday”.

Home Manager Marilyn Kimayong said “Kathleen did not want a great deal of fuss as she said that she had celebrated many birthdays previously! She was born in 1914; the same year of the start of the First World War and has lived at Abbeycrest Since 2012.

It was wonderful to see so many different generations all come together to share in Kathleen’s special day. We always facilitate a family’s wishes for their loved one to celebrate a birthday and have all the family here. Kathleen was full of smiles at having her whole family around her and they all thoroughly enjoyed the party.”

Happy birthday Kathleen!
